India has witnessed a season of ban in past few months. From the films and documentaries to egg ban to beef ban to temporary meat ban to porn ban, the bans have even tried to invade our privacy and has also interfered with the choice of our meal.

10. Cutting down trees
11. Spitting on road
12. Parliament logjam
